Between them, Ben Bertei and Nathan Lastevec have many years of experience in creating modern yet authentic Thai dishes. Together at LONgTIME, they produce excellent street food with inspired flavour combinations. Hidden down an alleyway, the restaurant has an industrial warehouse vibe complete with concrete floors and a large open kitchen. It is always busy, and staff members are friendly and knowledgeable.
The Thai-style menu is designed to be shared, so make sure you come with friends! Start with a small snack, such as the very more-ish betel leaf of caramelised pork, prawn and chicken with pineapple and chilli. Simply roll it up and bite into the sensational sweet and savoury flavours. Beef short ribs are slow cooked until the meat is falling off the bone. They are topped with a fermented chilli relish, and served with refreshing slices of cucumber and daikon.
PSST! Bookings for LONgTIME are only taken up to 6.30pm – after that it’s first come, first served.
